Order CAG audit in Maharashtra Sadan construction: BJP

July 24, 2012 17:35 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Kirit Somaiya on Tuesday demanded a special Comptroller and Auditor General audit into the alleged irregularities related to the construction of Maharashtra Sadan building along with an inquiry into certain 'benami' companies, which he claimed, had been floated by two state ministers.

Somaiya today reached the office of Comptroller and Auditor General Vinod Rai and submitted documents which he said were the basis of his allegations.

"We have demanded that there should be special audit in to it. In this scam, the FAR of the Maharashtra Sadan in Delhi has been allotted in Mumbai. And to ensure that prompt action is taken in to the matter, we will follow it up," he added.

"We have submitted nearly 450 pages of documents related to the scams, here," Somaiya said while speaking to reporters outside the CAG office.

Somaiya said that the CAG secretariat had received the documents which would now be examined by them. He added that he had also handed over to the CAG office documents  related to 'benami' companies and alleged that these were floated by two ministers of the Maharashtra government.
